The Sage SmartProbe® is no longer available

Why waste development time groping in the dark when this powerful tool permits the visibility and control necessary to proceed with confidence? From reading register values to controlling execution across multiple processor cores, the Sage SmartProbe brings firmware into focus.

“While developing our new Qseven® module based on the AMD G-series APU, we looked for the ultimate debug tool for board bring-up and testing. We really found the SmartProbe® from Sage to be the best debug tool we’ve ever had.” — Wolfgang Kamp, Managing Director, Datakamp System GmbH & Co. KG

The Best Debug Tool – At Your Fingertips.

A low-cost, powerful addition to every software engineer’s toolbox, a simple connector plugs into the automated, configurable Sage SmartProbe® and opens access to a higher level of productivity, visibility and control of the development process. The Sage SmartProbe® provides the developer a comprehensive hardware interface for controlling the system under development with zero system overhead. It works well in standalone environments, such as GDB, but provides maximum benefit when used in conjunction with the Sage EDK.
